David Mathre Photography

Welcome to my Images of the Day Photo blog. My goal is to post images from each day of the year going back to 2006 when I got my first DSLR camera. Images I post on Google+ are also forwarded to this Photo blog. I am a retired chemist that worked nearly thirty years in the Pharmaceutical industry. I took my first DSLR camera on a road trip across the United States, and became hooked, with my new passion becoming a photographer. I now spend all my time traveling and taking pictures. Since then I have visited over 50 countries, many on Semester at Sea voyages. My photographic interests include travel, the natural world, landscapes, and photographic techniques. I always want to learn something new and the only way to become better is to learn from mistakes.

    +Sofie Løve Forsberg I have a love hate relationship with the deer. They are beautiful animals. The fawns are very curious and great subjects to photograph. The down side is there are too many. Their only natural predator is the automobile. I had to give up on my kitchen garden, and I am recovering from Lyme disease that I caught from the deer ticks.

  3. +David Mathre Here there hardly any Deer or other WildLife left. Imagine that. Months and months goes by without seeing any. Here in Denmark the tics hide in the grass and on the bushes and jump out at you without any notice. Had a bad infection this spring due to the tick and didn't even have the beauty of the Deer to comfort me…

    +Sofie Løve Forsberg Some evenings I have two dozen of these in my backyard. I also have rabbits and ground hogs. The foxes, raccoons, and possums were pretty much wiped out 20-25 years ago by rabies. There is also a black bear that kept tearing down my bird feeder last year, so I gave up on that.

  5. +David Mathre WoW! Please tell them hello from me and let them know that they're always welcome here if they feel like crossing the ocean ;^)
